Buy a 1999 Rugby World Cup Two Pound Coin.
This 1999 two pound coin was issued to commemorate the 1999 Rugby World Cup. This silver proof piedfort coin features a hologram reverse which is the first time it was featured on a British coin. This coin comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authentication.
Limited mintage 10,000.
"STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS"
The edge is milled and also carries an incuse inscription.
The edge inscription encapsulates perfectly the essence of the reverse design, and has been taken from a letter written by Isaac Newton to fellow scientist Robert Hooke, where he very modestly claimed that his success had been built on the achievement of other: "If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants".The silver proof bimetallic two pound coins are often subject to light toning. The coin can appear 'cloudy', this is light toning which can develop into iridescent colouring which we find very attractive.
This piedfort coin is the same diameter as the circulation coin and is double the thickness and is struck to a proof finish. It contains twice the amount of silver as the silver proof coin. This coin comes in a presentation box with certificate.
This coin features the edge inscription:
